Interesting for White also is 6.Be3 Ng4 7.Bg5 h6 8.Bc1!? Nf6 9.Bc4!?, contending that the move ...h6 hurts Black in the Fischer-Sozin: it rules out the Bg5 lines, but makes his light squares more susceptible after a f2-f4-f5 push.  Food for thought ...

If sometimes we fly too close to the sun, at least this shows we are spreading our wings.

Najdorf 6.Be3 Ng4

I was wondering if the Nadjorf with 6. Be3 Ng4 has gone out of style or what? I have found a line that I run into trouble with and I wonder if it is because of that. Unfrotunately, I don't have updated theory so I may be a bit outdated, but the line runs:

1.e4 c5  2.Nf3 d6  3.d4 cxd4  4.Nxd4 Nf6  5.Nc3 a6  6.Be3 Ng4  7.Bg5 h6  8.Bh4 g5  9.Bg3 Bg7  10.Be2 h5  11.Nf5!? (p. 248 The Complete Najdorf Modern Lines, Nunn) 11... Bxf5  12.exf5 Qa5  13.O-O Bxc3  14.bxc3 Qxf5  15.Rb1 Nd7  16.Rxb7 Ngf6  17.Re1 =+

Is this still a critical line? Is 6...Ng4 no longer an issue? Please help.
